the neighborhood. >> you have a lot of company. >> i do. things are going to get better. things are winding down here owe the crews that are out working should not encounter any issues weatherwise. got some rain showers south and west of the city. get out towards front royal and down towards culpeper, a couple of light sprinkles and showers. that is the worst of it this morning. still a lot of clouds to start your day. i think by the noon hour and by the afternoon, we'll start to see a little sun working in from time to time. so believe it or not, kind of -- was that your chair? >> yes, my chair keeps squeaking. >> i thought that was like a ghoulish d. >> you never heard that before? >> temperatures right now, 43 in washington. 40 out at dulles. 41 at bwi marshall. i thought it was like a cat or something. >> you are easily distracted. >> trick or treat weather, temperatures will be falling back into the 40s after 5:00
p.m. so it will be cool for the ghosts and goblins and again, we should be dry so that is good news. >> sorry for the sound effects coming from our direction. i apologize. let's check in with julie wright. >> i'm anxious to hear what kind of sounds are going to pop up now. we're listening closely. on the roads, again, we are still dealing with standing water. it blocks route 4. a portion of route 2 that remains blocked off due to flooding. shreve mill road still shut down at 267. this is due to standing water. do not make an attempt to travel through that. instead, remember the theory if you will, the song, don't drown, turn around. we also have portions of georgetown pike that are still tied up with tree debris. coming out of leesburg, not so bad along route 7 but we do
have a portion of flooding that is causing some problems. whites ferry we are told not in service today west of whites ferry road west of 28 is where we have a large tree down. westbound on 50, approaching the beltway, stay to the right to get by there. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. >> thank you. superstorm sandy leaves a path of destruction across the northeast. up in new york, there is unprecedented damage to the transportation system. some buses are running for free but it will take days to get the subway fully restored. a massive fire in a flooded section of queens destroyed over 80 homes. but amazingly, there were no deaths. and the stock market is finally set to open using backup generators this morning. later on today, president obama will meet with governor chris christie to tour parts of new jersey. airports in the new york area are beginning to resume some nights but look at this. this is la guardia airport under water. a bird's eye view there you can
see shows flooded runways. new york, of course, the main transfer hub for international flights and millions of passengers around the world are stranded. sandy may have come and gone now but her impact will be felt for months. >> new fears of more flooding as another high tide is expected along the potomac river in just a few hours. melanie alnwick is live there now with an update on these flooding concerns. >> good morning. a coastal flood warning remains in effect until 2:00 p.m. friday so that means even more flooding could come, not just here to old town alexandria but to areas all along the tidal area. so we are talking about washington, d.c., georgetown waterfront and even prince george's county as well. so here in alexandria, this is something they've been through many, many times. they are used to flooding here. yesterday, let's take a look at some of the pictures when the water did start to come up after hurricane sandy came through. most of the bottom part of union and king street was
submerged in water. businesses, however, were well prepared. they got sandbags from the ity government. they've been through this many, many times. and once the worst of the storm was over, lots of people came out also to just sort of take a look and take some pictures and see what had been left over from hurricane sandy. but yes, as we have been talking about, with that coastal flood warning still coming, high tide still coming, all that water from other parts north making its way down here, they really cannot rest easy just yet. >> there are expectations it was coming up to 10 feet. it is measured by the pillar over there. there is foot increments. >> reporter: you heard one resident talking about the
pillar. it is right back behind me here. 10feet, that would be maybe about chest high or so to me. that would bring more of the impact further up king street. most of the businesses are prepared. they've got the sandbags in. a lot of them also have some plastic sheeting there. they do what they can. if it is really bad, it won't keep all of the water out but it does keep a little bit of the water out. city officials say that city of alexandria government is open for business today. they will seen have some voting going on as well as all the city services. trash pickup will go on today as they brace for the high tide at 10:08 and another high tide expected to be even higher tomorrow. >> thank you. it is one of the many devastating images from superstorm sandy. raging flames in a neighborhood in queens. if just kind of like a
blowtorch was taken to it. >> it looks really bad. straight ahead, we'll get an update on that situation as we check more headlines. teacher: this is west virginia, pennsylvania, delaware.
and this is maryland. every year marylanders spend five hundred and fifty million gaming at casinos in these other states. question seven will build a new casino and bring table games to baltimore... generating hundreds of millions for schools. and that money has to go to education. it's the law. so vote for question seven. so we can stop spending
all that money here, and keep maryland money in classrooms like mine.
. new this morning, clean-up is now under way in new york after this massive fire in queens yesterday. that fire destroyed at least 80 homes in the breezy point section. city's rockwith a peninsula. sandy certainly did not make it easier for the 200 firefighters called to the scene. crews out for chest-high water and had to use boats to rescue 20 people trapped inside. it looks like a war zone there. with less than a week until election day, governor mitt romney returns to the campaign trail with stops in florida today. >> yesterday, he campaigned in ohio and collected relief supplies no hurricane victims. he picked up the endorsement of former chrysler ceo lee iaccoca. president obama said the storm is not over as he toured the northwest yesterday. he is going to get a look at the damage with nog governor chris christie. our maryland senate debate
that was originally scheduled for 9:00 this morning has been canceled. -- with new jersey governor chris christie. letitia baldridge died. she was the first female executive at tiffany's and worked at embassies in roman paris. she later made her mark as annette cet expert and served as an advisor five other first ladies. -- and etiquette expert and served as an advisor to five other first ladies. >> we are checking weather and traffic. we'll be back.
a group of kayakers took full advantage of the extreme high tide in maryland. our sky fox helicopter spotted them on accept canada creek near darnestown. the creek is usually calm but yesterday, it was swollen and the waters were rough. -- on seneca creek near darnestown. some dramatic photographs capturing the strength of sandy. a wide swath of the eastern
enates now struggling with epic flooding and extensive power outages. the death toll has climbed to 55. sandy crashed ashore with hurricane-force winds on monday. -- it swamped parts of new york city's subway system and also manhattan's wall street financial district. estimates of the damage run into the tens of billions. some of the photographs that are just -- i mean one after another, just amazing when you see just how much strength is behind the storm as it came in. >> it was biggest in its size, not its strength. katrina was a stronger hurricane. a lot of them have been stronger storms but not as big. either way, very destructive. we are not selling sandy short at this hour. >> yeah, let's not do this. >> very respectful. good news is conditions are getting better around here. we'll be looking at -- it won't be a bright sunny day but maybe
a peek or two of sunshine. we are getting the rain and wind out of here so things will calm down. kids want to go trick or treating later. it will be cool but it shouldn't be raining. >> i think my first graphic is halloween. >> this is all good news considering the last couple of days. >> yeah, this is fantastic. i want to encourage you nobody to come to my neighborhood because we don't have power because that would be pretty scary for the kids. >> i'm a sure they won't be there. >> ghostly clouds, a creepy chill, upper 40s. we should be dry in time for the trick or treaters. during the afternoon, you might catch a little sunshine but with temperatures in the 50s but we'll be falling back into the 40s here by 6:00, 7:00 tonight. a couple of showers left over. this particular radar, this is falling from the sky. not sure all of this is touching the ground. we do have a few showers out to
the west at this hour. might be a the light drizzle just to the west of the city as well. lots of clouds to start your day. it will be mostly cloudy way the bit of sunshinworking in. sandy is no longer with us. it is officially extra-tropical so no longer getting reports from the hurricane center about it. but you can see the massive storm that was sandy is still out there and still continues to spin. we're getting showers pushing up into southern new england at this hour and still dealing with the mountain snow out to the west where they've got just an incredible amount of snow. not usual to be seeing that kind of snow out there. this whole system is living off very generally to the north and to the north it is. so the bottom line for us, lots of clouds in the forecast today. could be a few showers, particularly early. i think we'll generally be dry today with a little sunshine working in this afternoon. temperatures are cool. did i mention they were cool? yeah. 43 in washington. 39 in gaithersburg. 43 in leonardtown. 43 in stevensville.
it will be another cool day. our high temperatures will top out in the 50s. still, our average daytime high this time of year should be in the 60s. we'll be a good five, eight degree below normal. 55 today. winds south and west five to 10. that a lot lighter than yesterday. mostly cloudy skies. still cool for this time of year but we should be dry here for halloween. there is your accu-weather seven-day forecast. thend thend-- the weekend looks nice and dry with temperatures in the 50s. if you have to do things like chop up a tree np your front yard, should be nice weather to do that. >> are you offering to help? >> want you to come over and help me. >> only if you have trick or treat candy. >> i'm coming for candy corn and kit kats. >> i can hook you one that. >> all right. on the roads, very busy. we a lot happening early this morning as you make your way out and about. accident beingtivity is what is tying up your commute westbound
on 50 before you reach the capital beltway. it is the left lane that is closed off in maryland. storm damage continues to block a portion of 175 between route 3 and gambrell. you want to avoid this area. up in ashton, it is 108 that remains shut down between meek hollow road and new hampshire avenue. this is due to storm damage, trees down and a lot of clean- up that needs to be done. flooding causing problems for our friends coming out of charles county and la plata. and then 20 # much like yesterday afternoon, that remain under water as well. 202 shut down in each direction at the marlboro pike. other side of town, justify as busy. we have shreve mill road that remains blocked off. the flooding continues at 267 near the dulles toll road. we all have a portion of old georgetown pike -- or the georgetown pike shut down in each direction and that is due to trees and wires down as well. we are dealing with flooding
conditions again between 50 and 704 harmony church road. that's a check of your fox 5 on-time traffic. the sewage treatment system that serves the vast majority of homes in howard county is now back in operation. but here is the thing. tens of millions of gallons of raw sewage discharged before electricity was restored to the plant. >> reporter: officials in howard county call this complex their water reclamation plant because after sewage is treated, the water clean enough to discharge into the little patuxent river. it takes an immense amount of electricity to run this sewage facility so it is supplied by two different electrical feeder lines, one undergrowrpd and another that comes across the river. during the storm on monday, the underground line failed about 8:00 in the evening and the above ground line was knocked down by falling trees around 10:40 p.m.
the plant does have a large back-up generator but it is designed to keep things going for only 15 to 30 minutes. for about 12 hours, raw sewage was dumped at the rate of approximately 2 million gallons an hour. bge workers arrived here around dawn. >> i made it clear to the president of bge two days ago that this was our number one priority, made it clear again this morning. unfortunately, crews were not dispatched to assess the situation until this morning about 6:30. >> reporter: because of the complicated nature of sewage treatment, it will take days to fully restore the process here. >> we're moving hydraulically all the product through the plant. getting the plant to perform at 100% will take about four or five days because it's biological process that is pretty upset right now. >> so that could mean some of the stuff that is going into the river is still untreated? >> it's treated to probably 95%
of the standard. we will probably even make permit. >> reporter: because of the volume of rain tumed in, county officials believe the 25 million-gallon sewage discharge is not a health hazard. they do recommend against wading in the river for the next few days. a bge spokesman towed us it was trees coming down that killed both feeder lines. turns out the underground feeder line has some sort of aerial component and it was a tree down there that cut the electricity. because of the gusty overnight winds, he said, the utility could not put bucket crews here. they cooperate put the buckets in the air and they waited until dawn when they could safely repair the lines. the county executive here is not satisfied with that explanation. he wants an after an action report with the intent of minimizing the chance of this ever happening again. in howard county, john henrehan, fox 5 news. x 5 news.
>> a mess there. people in need of help following superstorm sandy. >> up next, the relief efforts already under way and can you help chip in. stay with us. with us. we'll have information when we come back. anncr: their ads, hopelessly untrue. a west virginia casino launching the biggest ad barrage ever. don't be misled. the washington post says question seven is just... common sense. it'll create 4,000 permanent jobs. and stop maryland from losing millions to other states... every year. that's why business, labor, and teachers all support... question seven. and so does the washington post.
vote for question seven. it's just common sense.
we had a good group of people. good group of employees out there. this was a booming place. and mitt romney and bain capital turned it in to a junk yard. i was suddenly, 60 years old. i had no health care. mainly i was thinking about my family. how am i going to take care of my family. he promised us the same things he's promising the united states. and he'll give you the same thing he gave us. nothing. anncr: priorities usa action is responsible for the content of this advertising. now that the storm has past, it is time to clean up andery build. >> all of that takes time, material and money. fox's james rosen looks at the
relief efforts. >> going to be a very large response covering multiple states. >> the biggest thing i'm concerned about is the power outages. >> it's not home but it's been made pretty comfortable for us here. >> the national guard and the red cross here have been super. >> reporter: james and kimberly joined by their dogs were among the 650 delaware residents who took refuge monday night in seven shelters the american red cross operates across the first state. this, the delmarva station, a special needs facility offering not only a lively kennel but emotional counselors, nurses, medical technician and a full- time physician who treated refugees from hurricane sandy suffering from diabetes, lung disease, even traumatic brain injury. >> many of the people in the she want forth last couple of days would never have been be a to stay here had we not been here. >> reporter: on sunday's first night, 250 shelters spread across 15 states welcomed
11,000 displaced persons. they served 25,000 meals and snacks. the storm has caused the cancellation of 300 red cross blood drives in 14 states producing a shortfall. >> this was was an enormous storm and it has required an enormous effort on the red cross to answer the needs and wave done that. but we now rely on the american public to help us continue to do that. -- we've done that. >> the simplest way to do that is a financial contribution. you can text one word red cross to 90999. that will dlfer a $10 donation. or you can call 1-800-red cross or visit the agency's web site at red -- that will deliver a $10 donation. up next, a dangerous scene involving in downed power wires on fire. >> we'll show that you video coming up next.
